“Between Cancer & Capricorn….Bumpthe Title 4 years ….. Let’s Pick North Dakota”

There’s a real definition for a “tropical” location:  A place between the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn.  For the U.S., only Hawaii is technically tropical.

The original title of “1984” was . . . “1980”.  But George Orwell got sick while he was writing it, the book got delayed, and he wanted a large enough gap between when it was published and the future he was writing about.

 You’ve probably heard of the games “Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?” and “Where in the U.S.A. Is Carmen Sandiego?”  Broderbund Software also created “Where in North Dakota Is Carmen Sandiego?” in 1989.  It was made for the Apple Two computer and is the only Carmen Sandiego game where she’s hiding in a specific state.
